Blurb: When Georgia Monroe scores a once in a lifetime interview on the brink of being fired, she takes the first available flight out of New York straight to Lonesome, Montana. A one on one with country music’s rising star Boone Beckett, could put her career back on track.
Her plans unravel when she takes a detour on a country road, and the wrong Beckett brother finds her and holds her up at gunpoint.
Bad boy Harlan Beckett despises reporters. Famous for singing dirty lyrics and the break out hit, “Heartbreak Kid,” he’s been out of the limelight thanks to a story the press got all wrong.
Georgia’s story changes when she’s coerced into staying at Harlan’s Ranch and discovers a secret.
Besides Harlan, everyone else in the small town seems to be wearing a perpetual grin.
Why is everyone so happy in a place named Lonesome?
Georgia’s about to find out.
My thoughts: I got this book free with over 300 other books of a similar genre via a deal. This is the 2nd Kate Kisset book I have read and I enjoyed this one slightly more than the first. When I first started reading ‘Heartbreaker’, I nearly added it to my DNF pile. I just couldn’t get into it but then 15% of the way in, something switched and I could NOT but the book down. I wish I said I read it in one sitting, I nearly did but unfortunately I had work so it was two sittings.
Georgia is a reporter for Rolling Stones Magazine. She is writing an article on Boone, a country singer-songwriter. She has a funny personality which I enjoyed though I’ve never known anybody go red from the neck up as much as this girl. Putting that aside, I did really enjoy this female lead.
Harlan, Boon’s badboy brother, really irritated me at first. Arrogant and a bit of a C U Next Tuesday, I really didn’t see how Harlan was going to be the guy I wanted to read about, the guy I wanted Georgia to be with. This side of Harlan is explained and starts to fade away the more he is with Georgia and I couldn’t help but start to encourage their romance, even if he was a bit forward and hands on for my liking.
The storyline is enjoyable and flows well. I wouldn’t say there is a big climax or anything extreme that happens in the story but it is an easy, quite short read that would be perfect to devour with whilst wrapped up in a blanket in front of a blazing fire with a fresh cup of hot cocoa.
As always, thanks for reading.
